Estimated power consumption is about 6KW/rack. For 110VAC installations we need to be thinking about using 4 circuits/rack. Three would give us adequate wattage, but just doesn't lend itself well to the 4 power strips. Two is not nearly enough.
For 220VAC installations, the best arrangement is to find a facility with 15A circuits. Then we can get by with two of them. If we're going into a facility with 9A circuits, we'll need 4.
See the attached spreadsheet for details.
